AT DELFEST WITH DEL MCCOURY AND TRAVELIN’ MCCOURYS
For TAB’s DelFest performance, they welcomed the festival’s host, Del McCoury, as well as Ronnie McCoury, Rob McCoury and Jason Carter for takes on “I’m Blue, I’m Lonesome” and “Beauty Of My Dreams.” Later in the evening, the younger McCoury’s and Carter returned for “Heavy Things” and “Black Dog.”
Anastasio has a long history with DelFest host Del McCoury, whom the Phish front man counts as an influence. As Trey explained at the festival, he was introduced to Del’s music from Aquarium Rescue Unit mandolinist Matt Mundy during a tour Phish did with ARU in the early ’90s. Phish started covering Del’s “Beauty Of My Dreams” in 1997 and then brought the Del McCoury Band to their Camp Oswego festival in 1999. Not only did the Del McCoury Band perform on one of the side stages at Camp Oswego, they also sat in for four songs with Phish during the first set of the July 18, 1999 show at the Oswego County Airport. Del and his boys also guested with Phish at the June 22, 2000 show in Antioch, Tennessee. Even TAB has a history with the Del McCoury Band as the bluegrass legend’s band sat in on three songs at Trey’s February 25, 2010 show.
Recently, incredible professionally-shot footage of TAB and their guests performing “I’m Blue, I’m Lonesome” has popped up on YouTube. Take a look:
